Dr. Maz Ghodsian of the Hemorrhoids Centers of Los Angeles (Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, and Huntington Beach) commonly performs sclerotherapy hemorrhoid removal for the treatment of moderate to severe hemorrhoids. Sclerotherapy hemorrhoid removal treatment is a fast and effective outpatient procedure performed by the Proctologist to treat small hemorrhoids with little to no pain. Since there is no surgical intervention, sclerotherapy results in a short recovery time with minimal side effects. Sclerotherapy is typically used for hemorrhoids that are moderate in size and dimension.

  • Sclerotherapy essentially involves the injection of a sclerosing solution to scar the internal hemorrhoids
  • A thorough evaluation by the doctor is needed to determine the ideal and most optimal treatment for your hemorrhoids
  • Sclerotherapy can be used effectively against smaller to moderate-sized internal hemorrhoids

Please note: Because the internal hemorrhoids are above the area of sensation called the dentate line, injection of the internal hemorrhoids is not painful.

Dr. G is incredibly professional and he made me feel completely comfortable. The office staff was great as well. They tried to be as accommodating as possible. I felt that I was a priority to Dr. G and his staff and that they were sincerely concerned that I received the results I wanted. I’m extremely happy with my results and will definitely be seeing Dr. G again for future procedures (hopefully not necessary). Best doctor in Beverly Hills for hemorrhoids by far! ~ YELP

Sclerotherapy is a very common treatment performed by the doctor for internal hemorrhoids. Sclerotherapy is often used as an alternative to rubber band ligation.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work

The sclerotherapy solution causes scar tissue to form around the hemorrhoid which results in the hemorrhoid shrinking and become asymptomatic. Side effects may include a short period of minor rectal bleeding. Sclerotherapy typically produces results in hemorrhoid removal in approximately 7 to 10 days. Given the swelling Sclerotherapy produces, no more than 1 hemorrhoid per session will be treated at a time.

Sclerotherapy itself is a far less intensive procedure than other surgical interventions such as a hemorrhoidectomy.
